WHERE USED/FITTED

When during WW2 the VHF AM Transmitter Type 87 was introduced it came with its own 87 receiver as an option. It wasn't a popular receiver and unlike its brother transmitter had many problems.Their Lordships chose this Receiver, the P104 (which they called the CDU) to take the place of the 87 VHF Receiver and it worked well for some time. However, they put this receiver 'out to grass' and in its place brought in a third receiver, the CDV/62H, of which we will hear about later. Fitted where a VHF requirement was most relevant.
